Getting rid of leg swelling

Mix 1.5 tsp of baking soda with 1 cup of boiling water.
Put cotton socks in this warm solution, wring them out, and put them on. Apply plastic food wrap over your feet. Put dry socks on. You may leave them for the whole night. In 8 hours, you’ll definitely see results.
Making an exfoliant and a contender against blackheads
Yes, that’s right. That good old box of baking soda deals with blackheads just great. Baking soda helps to neutralize your skin’s pH, so it’ll start producing less oil, and eventually, your blackheads will go away.
So you’ll have to:
Mix the baking soda and water to form a paste.
Splash your face with warm water to open up your pores.
Apply the baking soda paste to your face, concentrating on the blackhead areas.
Then massage the paste into your skin and leave it on for a minute.
Rinse off the paste with warm water and splash your face with cool water to constrict the pores.
